Leaving a gift to the Auckland City Mission
At the Auckland City Mission we understand that loved ones always come first. After taking care of your loved ones just a small percentage of what’s left behind could make a huge difference to our work.
To find out more about the simple ways you can support us through a gift in your will download our Legacy Leaflet.
Your solicitor or Trustee company can also create a Will for you, or update your existing Will in order to include a gift to the Auckland City Mission with correct legal wording. All you need is our Charity name, number and address.
With over 130 years of experience, Perpetual Guardian are experts at preparing clear, concise Wills which will help ensure your wishes are carried out. To find out how they can help you email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0800 87 87 82.
If you don’t have a solicitor or professional Trustee company, the New Zealand Law Society website can provide direction.
Bequest – Suggested Wording
Below is suggested wording your solicitor or professional Trustee company could use. This can be incorporated into your new will or simply added as a codicil to an existing one.
A percentage or residue:
“I give The Auckland City Mission (Charity Registration Number CC22938) the rest and residue of my estate (or) ____ percent of my estate (or)_____ percent of the residue of my estate, free of all duties and testamentary expenses for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of that organisation shall be sufficient discharge to my executors for this bequest.”
A set sum or specific item:
“I give The Auckland City Mission (Charity Registration Number CC22938) _____ $ (sum of money) (or) ____ (specific item/assets), free of all duties and testamentary expenses for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of that organisation shall be sufficient discharge to my executors for this bequest.”
“I felt some responsibility towards those more vulnerable than me, it was many years ago I started donating. I felt that this was an organisation which had the needs of people right at the forefront with no judgement being made.”
“A worthwhile cause, doing excellent work in the community that I could not do myself. The Mission deserves all the help it can get.”
